We save you TIME – and frustration

Most people buying property underestimate how much time it takes and it can be a particularly long and difficult process if you are trying to do it from a distance without good local knowledge. French estate agents expect you to do all the chasing – they won’t take your details and then send you suitable properties to consider. They will expect you to visit them and then show you what they have available on their books at that time – a very frustrating and time-consuming business as anyone has been through it will tell you.

What’s more, all those hours trawling property sites on the internet so often turn out to be a waste of time as, more often than not, the houses shown are no longer available (sometimes they never were) or are pictured carefully cropped so as to hide the electricity pylon in the foreground. Estate agents details only contain the most basic facts, so it’s impossible to tell what a house is really like – let alone whether it’s located near a noisy road, railway line or sewage farm.

How many unsuccessful trips to France will it take to find the perfect property with the frustration of knowing that it is out there but you just can’t find it?

This is where we come in. Instead of you wasting valuable time visiting properties that turn out to be unsuitable, we handle all the time-consuming groundwork for you to pinpoint the very best properties available that meet your unique needs exactly. We will take the stress and strain out of your search and find you the perfect property – in the ideal location and at the right price. And we visit all the estate agents in the region as well as the notaries and we will trawl private sales advertisements. We might visit 40 properties of which only five prove to be suitable. We will then draw up a shortlist of suitable properties complete with photographs and our impartial comments. No hassle, no headaches and no disappointments. Once you have decided to view, we will organize your viewing trip and personally accompany you and liaise with the agents and sellers on your behalf and even arrange for a trustworthy local builder to check out a property before you make the decision to buy.
